Feeling a bit camera shy


This isnt music you've heard before. BROCK is evolution in action, fusing hip-hop with the harmonic complexities of jazz and the bombast of classic rock, set to lyrics that boast the sharp wit of intelligence with a Rhythmic and Soulful intensity. The result is a new standard that audiences cant get enough of, and Future Artists will model themselves after.

Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist & Songwriter Brock Smith has shared the stage with Pharrell Williams, N.E.R.D., Black Eyed Peas, Cypress Hill, Dead Prez, New Orleans funkmasters Papa Grows Funk, John Scofield, Guster, Living Colour, Tim Reynolds, Gavin DeGraw, Mike Doughty of Soul Coughing and many more. And people get it. Pedal steel phenom Robert Randolph was seen bowing to Brock backstage at a concert because "B Understands."

Drummer Jon Laine has performed with luminaries such as Aretha Franklin, Erykah Badu, Common and others.

Keyboardist Raliegh Neal is currently on a world tour playing keyboards with Michael Franti & Spearhead.

Live Sound Engineer/Producer E.L. Copeland has worked with Dave Grohl, Prince, B.B. King, James Brown, George Clinton, The Roots, 311, Nothingface, Staind, Jill Scott, Living Colour, Karsh Kale, and too many others to mention.

BROCK has taken in broad strokes from the best and weaved them into a style that is bringing not just live instruments, but a new level of musicianship to hip-hop music; a new sound to the industry to accompany a new, independent business model; and most importantly, bringing real music to the masses. It doesnt matter where youre coming from, these sounds will reach you.
